The country has been bathed in heat for a couple of weeks now, and in its wake comes a new risk to public health.

You see, like many men, in the last week or two I've taken to wearing shorts and sandals to work. It's just too hot otherwise. Now that in itself is fine, but take into account my habit of taking off my shirt or t-shirt while I'm in the loo (mainly because it's too bloody hot in there) and the combination is worrying.

You see, at home I quite often wander around in just the shorts, not bothering with a shirt. You know what's coming, don't you? It's only a matter of time before I absent-mindedly walk out of the loo and sit back down at my desk with no shirt on.

Wearing home clothes to work has hidden dangers. You have been warned.
